Bring on Autumn with Roasted Butternut Squash

A cool, drizzly autumnish day like today makes me crave certain foods.  One of those is roasted butternut squash.  Maybe it’s the simultaneously sweet and savory flavor of this decadent vegetable recipe that makes it one of my favorites.  I think you’ll get hooked like I have!  The shape of the squash can be a little intimidating to peel, but it’s easier if you microwave it for a couple minutes first to soften and use a very sharp knife or peeler.  I have also chopped the thing in half and used the flat end as a sturdy base to stand it on while peeling down the sides with a knife, like peeling a pineapple.  You can also put a towel underneath the squash to prevent slipping while peeling.  I promise it’s worth it!  And you can’t get this flavor from anything other than fresh squash. A time-saver is to chop the squash ahead of time and put in the fridge until you’re ready to roast.   Let me know what you think.
